... Still Here War.
A good friend suggested I look into the CSPAN video of the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast from this morning, and fast forward to the address from Dr. Benjamin Carson, director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions. In under a half hour this learned and accomplished man said more and made more solid [...]
Man cannot live on politics alone... Beautiful.
I just had to share this incredible video. This little Peter Pan has his very own patient, attentive, and devoted "Nana"... You can see an extended version of this interaction (without the music bed) between the little boy and the Golden Retriever here. Recently there was the story of a lost 10 year old Down [...]
I am not sure if anyone at Babalu has covered this before, but I had no idea. I admit to being one of those who simply took for granted one of my all time favorite Christmas carols had been written a century or more ago in some chilly New England loft or a dusty European [...]
For several years now Bill O'Reilly has documented the war on Christmas in this country. It seems like every Christmas season the secular atheists can't help but insist on making everyone as miserable, sour, and antisocial as they are. They are offended by any outward expressions of Christmas, whether religious or not. Friday night O'Reilly [...]
Two excellent essay, one on The American Spectator and the other on Human Events: "Au Revoir, Mr. President" by R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr [...] Obama has come across as an amazingly close approximation of Jimmy Carter, complete with a slow-growth economy and a foreign policy disaster, though one of Obama's empty boasts was he understood [...]
“At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it? -- Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never! -- All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our [...]
As a Jew, these are not my words, but the battle cry of the Cristeros, as well as the last vows of martyrs in the film, For Greater Glory: The True Story of Cristiada, a film about faith, freedom, conviction, and refusal to abandon those principles. This film is populated by heroes of the kind [...]
I grabbed this from a FaceBook follow: Tea Party Fort Lauderdale 8-4-12 (I'm taking the picture so all you see of me is my SO FAR THE CHANGE SUCKS sign) . GREAT PATRIOTS...temps in the 90's deters no one! — at Oakland Park Blvd / Federal Hywy . Love the "Stop the circus. Fire the [...]
My dear friend Fernando Marquet: Humanitarian, great patriot, freedom fighter, wonderful family man and friend, has a great write up in a local newspaper, The Downey Patriot. People such as Fernando are those who make our world a better place. I am very proud and honored to have worked with him on a number of his [...]
Read any Cuban newspaper or magazine from the early and late fifties you'll learn that fidel castro and his Rebeldes were the best thing since sliced bread. Almost every major media source in Cuba supported his campaign and published accolades about the man and his "fight for change." Many major American news sources followed suit, [...]
This need for selflessness - and the blessings that come with it - sharpened for me almost four years ago when I was given the gift of broader horizons, clarified priorities, and more commitment to justice and compassion for my fellow man who faces challenges and fears. I was granted this through a gift that [...]
This is a must read. It is the eulogy writer Mona Simpson, the sister of Steve Jobs, wrote for her beloved brother. I don't want to truncate its context here with a short excerpt. It needs read from beginning to end. It is perhaps one of the most beautiful things I believe I have ever [...]
I will forever hold in my heart the image of Laura Pollán, dressed in white, carrying gladiolus, leading the column of Las Damas de Blanco. How many of us waited every Sunday for news of their weekly act of brave resistance, their peaceful, dignified walk down Havana’s 5th Avenue, as we prayed for their safety, [...]
